They serve as an official administration mouthpiece. They're paid to lie. They're not alone.

On January 20, Post columnist Robert Samuelson headlined "Obama's quest for greatness." 

Achieving the "legacy thing" may be harder than he imagines, he said. He's "already a historic president as the first African American to be elected, but there is a chasm between being historic and being great."

Too bad Samuelson didn't explain why. Historical analogues he discussed misstated facts, misinterpreted others, and omitted what's most important.

Samuelson covers politics, business and economic issues. He makes economics look like pseudoscience. He's notoriously neoliberal. He moralizes over a nonexistent deficit crisis. 

He prioritizes austerity. He wants Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid cut more than already. He wants Obama to target them more than planned.

On December 31, he headlined "Obama's leadership failure."

He wants ordinary people, those most disadvantaged, and America's elderly to bear the burden of deficit cutting. Obama hasn't done enough, he said. He's "profoundly hostile to the national interest."

Samuelson deliberately misleads readers. He shames himself in the process. He's got plenty of company.
